California Sues Dozens of Charity Fundraisers

The Los Angeles Times reportsthat California has sued 17 telemarketers, 12 other organizations, and 53 individuals as part of the national crackdown on fraudulent charitable fundraising about which we previously blogged.  Attorney General Jerry Brown is asking for remedies ranging from forcing the defendants to pay funds raised to legitimate charities, to pay civil penalties, and, in the case of allegedly fraudulent charities, to end operations.  [The California Attorney General's website appears to be down, so I will link to its press release about these lawsuits when it becomes available.]
